Provincial police in Ontario have launched a criminal investigation into the deadly mall roof collapse in Elliot Lake.

Two women were killed on June 23 when the roof of the Algo Centre Mall caved in and plummeted two floors down into the building in the Northern Ontario community.

Ontario Provincial Police announced Tuesday they have started a criminal investigation.

The force is asking anyone who believes they have information that may be important to the investigation to contact a special information line that has been established at 1-855-677-4636 (1-855-OPP-INFO).

The Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario and the Ontario Ministry of Labour are also conducting investigations. Both the coroner’s office and the ministry are fully co-operating with the investigation, OPP said.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty announced a public inquiry into the mall collapse Friday following public outcry about why search-and-rescue efforts were called off two days after the collapse, only to be restarted hours later after an appeal from McGuinty.

Doloris Perizzolo, 70, and Lucie Aylwin, 37, were killed in the collapse.

Gary Gendron, the fiancé of Lucie Aylwin, one of the victims of the partial collapse of the Algo Centre Mall in Ellliot Lake, Ont, is to talk with the media today.

Aylwin, a worker at a lottery kiosk at the main shopping mall in Elliot Lake, and longtime resident Doloris Perizzolo are the two people who were killed in the tragedy, CBC News confirmed Thursday.

The bodies of Aylwin, 37, and Perizzolo, 70, were pulled Wednesday from the rubble of the mall during an intense search effort involving special heavy machinery that carefully dismantled parts of the building.

Alywin had apparently taken on the part-time mall job to save money for her wedding. Perizzolo, a mother of two daughters, reportedly worked at a hospital until she retired, and her husband died last year.

The latest news in a tragedy that started when the roof-top parking lot caved in and debris crashed through two storeys of the mall on Saturday afternoon comes as work crews are cordoning off areas of the mall so Ontario Provincial Police can start a criminal probe.Lucie Aylwin, 37, was working at a lottery kiosk in Algo Centre Mall at the time the roof of the building caved in.

Residents are seeking answers to why the tragedy happened and why equipment that proved vital to search efforts wasn’t brought in sooner.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, who has promised a “thorough review” of the emergency response to the mall roof collapse, met with Elliot Lake Mayor Rick Hamilton on Wednesday morning to discuss an aid plan to help the community cope with economic and emotional loss.

McGuinty said he and Hamilton aim to figure out how to relocate some of the businesses and social services that were in the mall. The premier also said he wanted to clear up some misconceptions during the search and recovery work.

“It was unfortunate the impression created was somehow they [searchers] were putting down tools, when in fact what they wanted to do was, having come up against a wall literally in some sense, they were exploring a new option.

“It’s really important that people understand that these people in this community together with the search and rescue team were always committed to doing everything they possibly could and never at any point in time considered abandoning the search.”

MPP wants independent inquiry

Meanwhile, NDP MPP Mike Mantha, who represents Elliot Lake, said a review of the tragedy isn’t enough, and he wants a full public inquiry.

Mantha said the families of the victims need and deserve answers, and while he praised the work of emergency workers, he said it’s important to learn from the disaster.

“Canadians united behind Elliot Lake this week in a dark time,” Mantha said. “Now, we owe it to the families of the victims and the community to take every step we can to get answers and to ensure this doesn’t happen again. An independent public inquiry will ensure that no stone is left unturned.”

But for residents of the former mining community of 11,000 that is located about 150 kilometres west of Sudbury, the answers can’t come soon enough.

Fiancé held on to hope

In an interview with CBC News earlier this week, before the first body was recovered Wednesday morning, Gendron said he held hope Aylwin would be found alive among the rubble.

He said he had breakfast with Aylwin on Saturday morning before she left for work at the mall, and hadn’t seen her since.

“She’s a good-hearted person just like the way I am and she is always willing to help out everybody,” he said. “We’ve been together over two years …”

Residents, meanwhile, are still expressing shock over the tragedy, and the way it was handled.

“It’s just been very frustrating,” said Kimberly Lilley Valley, 48. “There’s been tears, there’s been laughter, there’s been hugs. It’s just emotionally very draining.”

‘We will look into negligence; there is the possibility of charges if warranted.’—Marc Depatie, OPP spokesman

Some residents are also asking about the condition of the mall prior to the collapse, saying it had problems with leaks.

The mall’s manager, Rhonda Bear, told CBC News that it had been undergoing repair and maintenance work on parts of its roof, but not on the section that collapsed. She also said an engineering study of the 30-year-old building turned up nothing.

“It’ll never be open again, I hope not anyway,” said resident Ellas Williams as he sat across from the parking lot of the Algo Centre Mall. “Tear it down, leave the piece of land as it is.”

Search efforts were halted on Monday after officials deemed the building to be unsafe, even though workers had detected signs of life within the rubble. Parts of the building were unstable, leading to fears of a second collapse.

The decision drew widespread anger in the community and prompted an appeal from McGuinty for rescue workers to consider all available options. A specialized crane was brought Tuesday to remove sections of the mall’s facade to gain safe entry into the site.

Townspeople applaud rescue team

That equipment should have been brought in sooner, said Catrina Briffett.

“I think they should have done a better job, they should have called these people as soon as they could,” she said.Residents of Elliot Lake listen to Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty speak regarding recovery efforts at Algo Centre Mall on Wednesday. McGuinty has promised a full review.

CBC’s Natalie Kalata reported from Elliot Lake on Thursday morning that work crews have put a fence up around the mall in light of the criminal investigation by the OPP, who are assisting the Ministry of Labour and the coroner’s office.

OPP spokesman Marc Depatie said the criminal investigation was started “from the onset.

“We will look into negligence; there is the possibility of charges if warranted,” he said, cautioning that the probe is in its early stages and there’s still “lots of work ahead.”

Bill Neadles, of the Heavy Urban Search and Rescue unit in Toronto, said during a briefing Wednesday following the recovery of the two bodies that the “hardest thing” was dealing with the perception from residents that his team had given up prior to the equipment arriving.

“That you thought we were going to pack up and go home. That was devastating,” Neadles said at a Wednesday press conference. “We would stay another four to five weeks if we had to.”

The audience, made up of townspeople, began to clap as Neadles finished his remarks and stood up to give him and his team, who are all volunteers and unpaid for the work, the applause.

Community members are also working to help some of the estimated 300 people who either work or own businesses in the mall.

“These are acquaintances,” said Dawn Morissette, who helped organize the Elliot Lake Relief Fund. “These are people who have helped me in the mall. These are people that I grew up with and run into when I moved back into town, so these are faces that I’m used to seeing on a regular basis.”

Donations can be made at a number of financial institutions, including Bank of Montreal, Scotiabank, TD, CIBC, Royal Bank of Canada and the Northern Credit Union.

June 27, 2012              9:31 AM ET

Searchers have recovered a second body today from a partially collapsed mall in Elliot Lake, Ont., after locating the first one this morning following hours of searching using advanced machinery.

Bill Neadles of Heavy Urban Search and Rescue in Toronto told a news conference Wednesday around 1:15 p.m. ET that the second body was found near a wall in Algo Centre Mall, not far from where the first body was found about four hours earlier.

Neadles described in detail how a major piece of equipment with a robotic arm was aided by two secondary pieces of equipment to slowly carve a path into the mall and methodically tear down parts of the building. Canine units helped recover the two bodies, although their names haven’t been released.

Dan Hefkey, chief and assistant deputy minister at Emergency Management Ontario, earlier told reporters the body of the first person who was recovered was taken to an area near the search site for the coroner “to attend to the remains.”

“We have already spoken with the families of this as well,” Hefkey said, adding there’s still hope they will find survivors.

OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis told a later briefing that “there are no signs of life right now, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t somebody alive in there.”

CBC’s Natalie Kalata said from the scene Wednesday that rescue workers took off their helmets and hard hats in a show of respect to the first person whose body was found, “and that really hit the community hard.”

Earlier, she reported, “We know there were two people trapped in the rubble —we have only heard reports and seen evidence of one person being removed.”

Search resumed after outcry

Before the intense overnight mall-dismantling efforts began, at least one person had been confirmed dead after the roof-top parking lot of the mall caved in Saturday afternoon, sending metal and concrete debris crashing through two floors of the building in Elliot Lake, a former mining community of about 11,000 people that is 150 kilometres west of Sudbury.

An ambulance has arrived and crane work has been halted this morning at the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake, Ont., where residents have been watching as crews have been dismantling the building in an effort to search for any survivors of the weekend roof collapse.

Another 12 people had remained unaccounted for, down from the 30 officials earlier estimated were missing. However, Lewis said the number of people still missing hasn’t been confirmed.

Hefkey had said early Wednesday morning that using the robotic arm on equipment from a Toronto construction firm, crews were able to move a massive section of an escalator and stairs that had prevented rescue workers from entering the mall.

The search for any survivors resumed late Tuesday after it had been halted Monday when it was believed there was a danger to people involved in rescue efforts, and there was public outcry and pressure from Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty to resume the mission.

At the Wednesday mid-morning news conference, Lewis defended the halt and the resumption of the search, saying that earlier in the efforts, workers were doing their best in a quick way to find any survivors.

Lewis said “this is a tragedy that I’m sure has affected everybody in this community.” He added that based on earlier reports that the mall was old and on the verge of collapse for a long time, there will most likely be an investigation of some type.

“Between the OPP and the Ministry of Labour … that will all be examined, and if there was something done wrong here, we’ll deal with it.

“The priority isn’t that piece right now. It’s to continue what we’re doing.”

Residents express frustration

Kalata said many residents who have been at the disaster site since Saturday have been frustrated and angry that they aren’t hearing updates about the search efforts in a timely fashion.

One resident reacting to the news that a body was recovered said, “Where’s the rest of the people who are on the list” of persons believed to be missing?

The search and recovery efforts have involved teams from private interests and various levels of government, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper also pledging military help if needed.

But the added human and equipment arsenal only came after intense criticism from residents.

In an interview in the early afternoon Wednesday, Hefkey told CBC News that the search was suspended temporarily because two structural engineers assessed the situation, and determined it wasn’t safe for either any possible survivors or search crew.

“The equipment the rescue team had at that time was insufficient,” said Hefkey. “That’s when the staff inspectir asked for further assistance and that’s where he reached out to me. That led to the bringing in of three immense cranes.”

Toronto police are searching for at least one suspect after a Saturday evening shooting in the Eaton Centre left one man dead and seven others injured.

Const. Victor Kwong said the shooting took place in a busy lower-level food court, adding that one male victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kwong listed the genders and conditions of all eight victims and the ages of three, which are as follows:

  • Male, 25, dead
  • Male, 20, critical condition
  • Male, 13, critical condition
  • Female, no age given, serious condition
  • Male, no age given, serious condition
  • Female, no age given, serious condition
  • Pregnant female, no age given, went into labour after being knocked down
  • Female, no age given, grazed by bullet

Toronto police chief Bill Blair, who called the shooting “outrageous,” told a group of reporters that officers are in the early stages of their investigation and that what they share with the public is likely to change.

“I want my officers to have the time to gather all of the evidence,” said Blair, adding that investigators will obtain footage from security cameras in the mall and speak to witnesses that come forward.

“The wanton disregard for the lives and safety of fellow citizens [is] shocking to us,” he said.

Blair added that most of the other victims — including the young boy — were likely innocent bystanders. The only exception is likely the man who was killed, he said.

“The nature of those wounds do indicate that that individual was targeted,” he said.

One reporter asked if Blair was reminded of the Boxing Day 2005 shooting death of Jane Creba, 15, which took place nearby on Yonge Street.

“Today harkens back to that terrible moment,” Blair said. “This is a very serious thing that has happened in a public place in Toronto.”

“I believe that every Torontonian is shocked and appalled by this terrible crime.”

Father learned of son’s injuries online

Chris Kalakonis told CBC News he found out his son Nick was shot in the leg from a Facebook message.

The young man, who lost his phone in the chaos, was shot while lying on the floor, he said. His girlfriend sent a Facebook message to inform his family after the 6:30 p.m. ET shooting.

At first Kalakonis didn’t believe his son had been shot, but when he turned on a television he realized it could be true. He called nearby St. Michael’s Hospital and confirmed that his son had been shot in the leg.

Kalakonis called the situation “senseless,” but added he’s grateful things didn’t end up worse.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford spoke to reporters outside the Eaton Centre at about 9:30 p.m.

“As soon as I heard the news I got in my car,” he said. “This incident tonight is absolutely terrible. We want to make sure these people are apprehended and arrested.”

Ford expressed particular concern over the 13-year-old boy in critical condition, who Blair said was with his family when he was shot.

“It really pulls on my heart strings when you hear something like that,” Ford said, adding that he had spent the afternoon coaching football players around the boy’s age.

“I really hope the young man pulls through.”

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty also extended his sympathies to those affected by the shooting.

“The victim and those who were injured are particularly in Ontarians’ thoughts and prayers right now as we attempt to make sense of this instance of senseless, tragic violence in the heart of a peaceful city,” he said in a statement.

“I know I speak for all Ontarians when I say that while we are saddened and shocked by today’s events, we will respond as we always have — with strength, determination and a desire to work together, and work even harder, to build communities that are safe, secure and free of gun violence.”

Police hunt for suspect

“At this time we do not have the shooter,” said Const. Kwong. Investigators have not yet released their description of the suspect, nor clarified whether they are looking for more than one person.

Blair added that police would remain in the mall for as long as it takes to do a thorough investigation, and that his officers were prepared to be “relentless” in their efforts.

Chaos erupted in food court

Witnesses who were in the food court when the shooting began told CBC’s Amanda Margison that shoppers abandoned everything from strollers to purses as they fled. Others hid beneath tables until police ordered a full evacuation.

“It was unbelievable…It was out of the blue,” said Marcus Neves-Polonio who was working in the mall’s food court when he saw a man pull out a gun and start firing.

“As soon as I heard the gunshots, I ducked under the table.”

One employee in a noodle store told Margison she heard at least five gunshots, as she and several others ran into the storage room and locked themselves inside.

Blue Jays player caught up in chaos

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie was also in the mall when the shooting took place and was one of the first to take to Twitter to break the news.

“Pretty sure someone just let off a round bullets in eaton center mall…Wow just sprinted out of the mall,” he tweeted.

“People sprinting up the stairs right from where we just were…Wow wow wow.”

“All of a sudden a herd of people were just running toward us, a massive crowd of people screaming, running, freaking out,” said Hannah Stewart, who was shopping in the mall at the time.

“We saw this girl, sitting on the ground, and she had blood on her toes.”

That girl appeared to have been one of the victims and told Stewart she had just been shot. At that point, police poured into the centre and began herding people outside.

“All these cops came running up and they started screaming at us to back off,” Stewart said. “They were screaming at us to run and get out.”

The shopping centre was surrounded by emergency vehicles after the shooting, as police cordoned off the section of Yonge Street between Queen and Dundas streets.

“When violence like this takes place in our city, we all have to stand up and say we won’t tolerate it,” said Blair.

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie was also in the mall when the shooting took place and was one of the first to take to Twitter to break the news.

“Pretty sure someone just let off a round bullets in eaton center mall…Wow just sprinted out of the mall,” he tweeted.

“People sprinting up the stairs right from where we just were…Wow wow wow.”

“All of a sudden a herd of people were just running toward us, a massive crowd of people screaming, running, freaking out,” said Hannah Stewart, who was shopping in the mall at the time.

“We saw this girl, sitting on the ground, and she had blood on her toes.”

That girl appeared to have been one of the victims and told Stewart she had just been shot. At that point, police poured into the centre and began herding people outside.

“All these cops came running up and they started screaming at us to back off,” Stewart said. “They were screaming at us to run and get out.”

The shopping centre was surrounded by emergency vehicles after the shooting, as police cordoned off the section of Yonge Street between Queen and Dundas streets.

“When violence like this takes place in our city, we all have to stand up and say we won’t tolerate it,” said Blair.
